Raptor Rescue Plett is a bird of prey rehabilitation and education centre. We offer guided tours which allow the public the opportunity to see these magnificent birds up closely. Our aim is to create awareness of the vital role that raptors play in maintaining a healthy eco-system and why it is important that we conserve them.

It is a relatively small rescue and rehabilitation center with several dozens of raptor birds, but the guy who runs it makes it a truly remarkable place. His stories about birds are very amusing and informative. There was also flight demonstrations with several different birds. A great place to visit, also with kids.


Fantastic tour! One of the better go to places on the garden route. Deserves much more than 5 stars.
Mark takes you through the rehabilitation center and presents the raptors with great passion and knowledge.
It makes for a tour which is both informative, fun and exciting. Next to the center there is a nice coffee place and great craftsman shopping places.
